-       Create a centre part and smooth hair back into a very low ponytail on the nape of the neck using Charles Worthington's Front Row Big Hair Volume Mousse.
-       Contrasting the severity of the front section, backcomb the tail of the ponytail.
-       Twist the length of the tail before wrapping it around the base of the pony to create a knot.
-       Secure the knots with pins, allowing the tips to escape out to one side.
-       Use the palm of your hand to gently massage the knot and allow flyaway strands to escape..
-      Finally, spray the Charles Worthington Front Row Forever Lasting Hairspray onto your fingertips then use them to smooth the hair at the parting.
